Today is my day to share a project on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog and I wanted to share a fun card with this adorable Cuppa Cactus set. It is such a fun set for coloring and I love this sentiment!
I tried a new color combination for today and I really like this pale yellow with the purple. I chose the purple for coloring the cup and then mimicked it with the Sea Borders Dies to add a little scallop edge on the bottom of the image panel. I think it adds an interesting pop of color but it is super easy to create. I pulled out a button, which somehow seemed to be just the right touch for the twine.
Now I know this is a pretty clean card but I wanted just to spend a few minutes on the coloring. Seems like time is at a premium but the coloring was just what I needed for a little “mom break”. Only one more week until school is ready to start and then I’ll have lots more time for more complicated cards. Until then, less layers, pretty colors…yep, totally a summer vibe. I can’t wait until tomorrow. Make sure you come back tomorrow to see what we have up for you to celebrate Freshly Made Sketches 300th Sketch Challenge. Until then, have a great day!
